Welcome to Owl Class
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome to Owl Class. I hope you all had a fun summer and are ready to work hard!
This term our topic is called 'How the Tudors shaped modern Britain.' Throughout this topic, we will learn all about the Terrifying yet terrific Tudor era! Where possible, lessons will be cross curricular to ensure that we explore the topic from a variety of perspectives. For example: creating Tudor portraits in art, learning about the reformation of the church in RE, researching famous explorers and the routes they took in Geography as well as delving into the wonderful world of William Shakespeare and much more.
Below are the key concepts that we will cover and you can find our curriculum map below:
Things to remember this term:
PE: Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Children should come to school WEARING their PE kit on these days and they will wear them throughout the day. Please ensure that your child comes equipped with t-shirt and shorts as well as tracksuit top and bottoms (any dark colour is fine) and old trainers for outdoor PE.
Homework: The children will be set weekly My Maths, spellings and reading homework. In addition to this, each term the children will receive topic based Nandos challenges. Nandos homework is optional and does not need to be completed every week. You will find login details for My Maths in their homework folders and reading records.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and must be returned for marking by the following Wednesday. Please note that if homework is handed in at a later date, it will not be marked.
Reading: Once again, reading continues to be a huge focus within all primary schools. Children are expected to read 3 times a week at least and should have this signed off by an adult each time. Children will be rewarded for reading at home: 5 reads with an adult = one housepoint :)
Spelling: Each week, children will receive a list of spellings with their homework. These should be practised regularly at home, ready for a test on Thursday morning. As well as completing the look, say, cover, write, check sheet, you can help your children by testing them at home.
Nandos homework is a series of optional homework tasks linked to our topic. Below are some of the excellent examples that have been created so far. Enjoy!
